Hollywood’s elite gathered earlier this evening (May 4) for the 2015 Met Gala; celebrating the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit, China: Through the Looking Glass.
The Costume Institute Benefit Gala, unofficially dubbed the Oscars of the fashion sect, is held annually to kick off the newest costume exhibit. Peter Dundas, the new creative director for Roberto Cavalli was dubbed man of the hour, as he had three looks unveiled on the red carpet on Kim Kardashian-West, Gong Li, and the woman wearing my favorite look of the night, Joan Smalls.
Smalls, the Puerto Rican fashion model known for her catwalk appeal in the Victoria’s Secret runway, was absolutely mesmerizing in her purple Cavalli gown. The one-shoulder, long sleeve with floor sweeping train was dreamy in and of itself, but continue to consider the all-over floral appliqués and revealing mesh peek-a-boos and you have the most aesthetically pleasing and memorable look.
The cinched in waist of this floor-length masterpiece highlighted Joan’s amazing figure, while the overall whimsy of the gown eluded to Joan as a red carpet goddess. Definite body and gown envy over here!
